"SYNAPSE" at L.A. Center for Digital Art

The Los Angeles Center for Digital Art in association
with EZTV, the CyberSpace Gallery, the SIGGRAPH Art Gallery
and the SIGGRAPH Guerilla Studio presents:

"SYNAPSE"

July 31-Aug 27 2005
Reception Sunday July 31, 8-10pm

Victor Acevedo
David Em
Kate Johnson
Tony Longson
Michael Masucci
Anneliese Varaldiev
Michael Wright

SYNAPSE is a group exhibition of seven artists who made a difference by
not only pursuing their personal aesthetics but because they operated
in such a way as to build bridges between art forms and art communities. 

SYNAPSE highlights some of the key accomplishments of the last
quarter-century in the development of the Southern California digital
art scene. SYNAPSE presents the work of David Em and Tony Longson, two
of the first artists anywhere to use computers in their art making
process. Victor Acevedo and Michael Wright are two early practioners of
PC based computer graphics for desktop printing and video. Michael
Masucci and Kate Johnson are writers, filmmakers and musicians who were
early adaptors of using desktop technology to create broadcast quality
productions using sound, dialogue and visual art. Anneliese Varaldiev
is a photographer and filmmaker who used early digital technology in
her work.

All these artists are veterans of the seminal Los Angeles digital art
community who gathered around EZTV, whose CyberSpace Gallery was
clearly among the world's first to dedicate itself to the advocacy and
exhibition of computer-based art. At a time when most of the Los
Angeles art world ignored the significance of the digital imaging
revolution, these particular artists advanced a variety of ideas and
aesthetic strategies that have since become prevalent. Each, in their
own way, began to explore the then relatively uncharted computer
assisted art-making territory. Many of these artists have been
exhibited in museums, galleries, festivals and conferences, and are
included in critical books, journals and periodicals concerning
digital art.

SYNAPSE in the tradition of the Digilantes, those EZTV-affiliated
artists who mounted a series of seminal computer art exhibitions
throughout Southern California in the 1990s and in conjunction with
ACM/SIGGRAPH  2005, the 32nd International Conference on Computer
Graphics and Interactive Techniques will be presented as a
site-specific exhibition at the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art in
downtown Los Angeles. SYNAPSE is part of the ACM/SIGGRAPH Conference
outreach program as sponsored by the SIGGRAPH Guerilla Studio and
SIGGRAPH 2005 Art Gallery.

This exhibit is the 2nd installment of the traveling series "Hacking
the Timeline" which attempts to inform and integrate into popular art
history an appreciation and acknowledgment of digital art.

"Reassembling Parts"

April 14-May 7, 2005
Opening Reception April 14 7-9pm

Los Angeles Center for Digital Art announces a four person group show
featuring the following artists:

Donna Tracy
Joshua Rowan
Andrew Kleindolph
Barbara Kossy

Donna Tracy

Each "Digital Skin" by 3D maven Donna Tracy starts with a texture map,
a digital painting that big time Hollywood animators add to virtual
3-D models to mimic real skin or fur. Early versions of these maps are
usually thrown away as characters and movie scenes evolve into their
final forms. Tracy salvages the beta skins, removes some attributes,
enhances others, and produces images that give the illusion of three
dimensions.

See article in Wired Magazine about Donna Tracy's work for this
exhibit:

http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/13.03/play.html?pg=5

Andrew Kleindolph

The work of Andrew Kleindolph looks like strange devices that are a
result of unpredictable garage invention rather than profound
technological experimentation. His designs are influenced by both old
and current, electronic and organic systems. The prints are constructed
from a combination of found and fabricated images, as well as scanned
sketches. The result is a low tech / high tech clash of organic and
techological forms that create ambiguous "blueprints" of bio-digital
processes.

http://www.extrasleepy.com

Barbara Kosssy

In huge panoramic prints created by assembling up to 100 separate
photos into one composite image Barbara Kossy explores the mutability
of time, space, and perception--issues that first intrigued her as a
film student. The distortion inherent when using a wide-angle lens
makes it impossible to seamlessly stitch the photo parts together, so
each individual shot is quite apparent. The result is a frame by frame
time exposure where Kossy records a full 360 degrees in about 15
minutes. Space, color, light and time are altered by the process of
taking the pictures and their reassembly.

Joshua Rowan

The brightly colored surfaces in the works of digital artist Joshua
Rowan give way to a psychologically darker landscape. Wild cartoonish
images created entirely in 3D software evoke a kitchy Americana
dreamworld inhabited by evil animals, demonic beings, waterfall beds,
legless girls and disembodied hands afloat. The artist gives a
fascinating digital update to surrealist practices, as each piece is a
painstaking recreation of a composition created by automatic drawing.
The work beckons us to interpret symbols assembled from images adrift
deep within the artist's psyche.
